recall sign investigation fuel leak recalls

MITSUBISHI


The Basics: Mitsubishi is recalling 50,000 Outback Sport SUVs because their rear hatch can open and fall on people. The recall impacts 2011, 2012 and 2016 model year vehicles.

The Issue: The issue is with the rear lift-gate supports. The support’s outer tube may corrode because it doesn’t have enough anti-corrosion protection. It it corrodes, there is a risk it will fall suddenly. It’s unclear if there are reports of failures or injuries. 

The Fix:  Mitsubishi dealers will replace the lift gate supports for free.  No word on when a recall will begin.

TOYOTA


The Basics: Toyota is recalling a small batch of 2017 Toyota 86 vehicles in America to address a key ignition issue.  The recall impacts 94 vehicles.

The Issue:  In the recalled vehicles, it could be possible to remove the key in positions other than “Park.” This increases the risk of a rollaway. The recall doesn’t impact models with a key fob and ignition button.

The Fix: Toyota says it will notify owners starting in January. They’ll be instructed to return the vehicle to a Toyota dealer to have the ignition key interlock function confirmed. If necessary, the delivery mode connector will be connected at no charge. For the most up-to-date Safety Recall information visit Toyota’s website.
